PICNIC IN THE PARK
SUMMERTIME IS PICNIC TIME
When the temperatures rise in summer, you want to move your whole living room outside. A cozy picnic in the park comes very close! So let's go: grab your sun hat and your favorite book and just enjoy the fresh air.
FEELING AT HOME OUTSIDE
Warm rays of sunshine and a clear blue sky: this is the perfect day for a few wonderful hours outdoors. Picnic basket and cooler bag can be packed quickly and with a few other accessories it becomes even more comfortable!
In addition to delicious meals with finger food and the like, comfortable seating is particularly important during a day in nature. A picnic blanket with a coated back is practical : this way, nobody gets wet trousers in a damp meadow.
So that all four of you can stretch out, enjoy the sun with a nap or immerse yourself in a book, cheerfully colored seat cushions are part of it. A hammock also invites you to relax and can be hung between two trees in no time and ready to swing and slumber.
Tip: If you want to enjoy the very last rays of the sun at a picnic, bring a battery-operated light chain with you, which ensures a cozy atmosphere in the evening and gently illuminates the picnic area.
So that glasses and snacks do not tilt on the soft surface, it is worth taking a sturdy wine box with you. On the one hand, it is practical for transporting blankets and pillows, on the other hand, it can be converted into a small table in no time at all .
In meadows with tall grass and wild flowers, you should also cover food and drinks well - otherwise one or two bees will certainly get lost in them. Glasses with screw caps prevent that! Also, remember to leave the spot in the green just as green and put a garbage bag on your packing list.
Tip: We think green! Stainless steel straws are reusable and protect nature.
FOR WHEN YOU'RE HUNGRY: PUFF PASTRY POCKETS WITH FETA
What would a picnic be without something to eat? This hearty snack is not only delicious, but also quick to prepare.
YOU NEED FOR 12 PUFF PASTRY POCKETS
- 1 pack of fresh or frozen puff pastry
- 300 g feta cheese
- 2 egg yolks
- Herbs (e.g. parsley) and pepper
Let the frozen puff pastry thaw well and cut it into 12 equal-sized rectangles. While you preheat the oven to 180 ° C top-bottom heat, mix the feta with herbs of your choice in a bowl (parsley goes particularly well with it) and season the whole thing with a good pinch of pepper.
Then put a small amount of feta mixture in the middle of each puff pastry. Then close it and press the ends tightly with a fork: this way, none of the feta mixture will run out of the dumplings in the oven. Finally, brush the pockets with egg yolk and, if desired, sprinkle with sesame seeds and caraway seeds. The small snacks then go into the oven for 15-20 minutes.
We wish you good appetite and a lot of fun with the picnic!
